    Has ride comfort / stiffness improved?

    Currently own a 2019 Model 3 LR with the aero wheels. I love the car, but my family sitting in the rear seats, not so much... I didn't believe my wife at first until we switched places and I sat in the back. I got migraines, nasuea and just wanted to get out of the car. And btw, neither of us...

    Clunking from the L front CV joint with creaking sound when going up/down driveway

    My M3 LRPerf (Stealth) currently with 9K miles on it was built in Freemont in June 2020. I took possession in mid July as original owner. When exiting my driveway the suspension has always has a little creek/groan. I've assumed that this was normal as the car was just coming out of the...

    Model Y LR and Performance Test-Drive Review

    I test drove the MY LR 7 Seater earlier, and now I've just finished an overnight test drive of the MYP! I drove around casually but also tried to push the car to see how it might do in more performance oriented driving, as I typically take my car to the track 1-2 times a year. My thoughts...

    Model 3 on YCW Aeries One way adjustment Coilovers

    Model 3 has few options on coilovers and suspension technology now compared to last year with affordable price range. We have UP, MPP and Redwood with KWs and Ohlins and they maybe great but not for the wallets haha. So I decided to search for some decent suspension without breaking the bank...

Interestingly, when the car rose to High automatically based on previous location settings it would...

    Model 3 Performance Lowered

    Anyone lowered their Model 3 P and have photos? I ask for the P specifically because I want to see the factory wheels. Debating if I want to do before years end or wait until Spring next year. Also, how’s clearance in most cases? I’m looking at H&R.

    OEM Suspension Position Sensors

    I swapped out the springs in my 2020 3LRD yesterday and noticed that it has suspension position sensors on the left hand side, front and rear. None on the right hand side. I haven't seen these mentioned anywhere yet, and I'm curious about what they would be doing. My theories are: - Monitoring...

    Suspension Keeps me in Suspense

    Somehow, my Model X seemed to think it needed to raise my suspension to "Very High" whenever it felt like it. While some might attribute this behavior to the fact that pot is legal here in Washington State, I suspect it has more to do with the snowstorm we had over a year ago. I do recall a 30"...

    MPP AWD/Performance Coilover Impression and Installation

    Suspension rattles can have many sources. There are many moving parts that can wear out and cause rattles. It is hard to pinpoint the exact source sometimes because in the cabin they all sound very similar. I had some rattles for a while and spent month trying to get to the bottom of it. This...

    Low/No speed suspension noise normal?

    I've noticed that when I turn the wheel at low or no speed, as seen/heard in this video, I get a creaking/ticking noise. Sometimes it's just one or two sounds, but usually always when I have to crank the wheel for slow turns or pulling/backing into parking spots. It's normally not as bad as the...

    When I left a Tesla Service center a couple of months ago after a complete tire swap-out for my MX 90D, I noticed an "Air Suspension Needs Service" warning. But after I made a stop on the way home, the warning disappeared. Then I saw it again several times, and it rarely stayed on for more...

    Raising the suspension of a Model S (on coils, not SAS)?

    My MS, on coils, is scraping garage exits weekly or so. I told myself it was a temporary problem as I would get an M3 instead, but now I see the M3 has only 0.5 cm more ground clearance (14 cm vs. 13.5 cm) - it does have a 10 cm smaller wheelbase, but I still doubt that would do the trick. So am...
